In the Garden

A vigorous vine Chinese Wisteria can grow 20–30 m long over supporting trees by counterclockwise-twining stems. The leaves are shiny, green, pinnately compound, 10–30 cm in length, with 9-13 oblong leaflets that are each 2–6 cm long. The flowers are blue, produced on 15–20 cm racemes in spring, usually reaching their peak in mid-November. The flowers on each raceme open simultaneously before the foliage has expanded, and have a distinctive fragrance similar to that of grapes.

Propagation

Chinese Wisteria is a shade-tolerant vine, but it blooms
only when grown in the partial to full sun. It prefers a deep, rich loam, but will grow in any soil. Great for an arbor or a trellis, but prune hard after flowering each year to keep it under control.
